So i read the Hurt Report and it states that most accidents occur on short trips/errands and was wondering what might contribute to this? I ask because i'm deciding whether i should get a pair of A* Fastlane shoes. They look awesome and are something i'd rather be wearing for a quick jaunt to the shops vs my full boots. But the protection on these guys is much less than the full boots which i find nost people justify by saying its just for short commutes etc. But if i'm more likely to have an accident on said short commute then it seems counter intuitive to wear less protection. To be honest, I would have thought that lower speeds, shorter time of travel and familiaroty with roads would all make it safer than a half day sprint around twisty roads. 8-[ Am i missing something??
